Hi, well I went to the GP practice hoping to collect my medical certificate since I have been feeling terrible. The receptionist told me no medical certificate had been done for me to be covered for a month starting from the 23rd August because they are not done in advance. I have been told to post it off by 22nd August by the latest so I will be in trouble over that. Secondly I have been advised to phone the GP practice tomorrow to discuss the issue with my iron tablets as I have been having trouble taking them. The GP said she will "rethink" about what other iron supplements I can take if I have trouble with them but I am only hoping that my reasons I have trouble with taking the ones prescribed are valid. The problems I have with taking them is that I need to take the iron away from milk, which is hard if iron interacts with milk, I need to take the iron supplements 2 hours away from the Levothyroxine but I have seen it stated that it's 4 hours? So, not looking forward to the GP appointment at all and I am thinking that it might be a good idea to ask for a second opinion during the call. Hopefully that is not too harsh.
